When should a separate odometer statement be used? Should I complete one when I have also completed the odometer statement on the title?

Agency: State

  • If a Michigan title or out-of-state title has a conforming odometer statement, the odometer statement on the title is always used. There is no need to also complete a separate odometer statement.
  • If an older title does not have a conforming odometer statement, a separate odometer statement is required.
  • With MCO's, either the back of the MCO or a separate odometer statement can be used. We recommend using the MCO.
  • Dealers under Michigan's Paperless MCO Program, do not receive a MCO from their manufacture and must use a separate odometer statement when vehicle ownership transfers.
